GDGT makes your gadget lists accessible

December 05, 2011

I'm not quite sure when it happened, but GDGT has implemented something I asked for a couple of years ago, namely publicly-accessible (i.e., no GDGT account required), user-specific gadget lists.

They've long offered an embeddable widget to display your "wants," "has" and "had" lists1, but I wanted to be able to reference each list by URI (at the GDGT site). Co-founder Ryan Block responded to my aforelinked request, and kind of hinted such a thing was coming. Well, it's here.

If you've any interest in psycho-analyzing my gadget "problem," my "had" list might be a good place to start. (Note that this list is still missing a number of my early mobile phones, PDAs, headphones, etc.)


  1. Until just a few minutes ago, this widget had long been embedded at /gadgets, but that address now simply points to my GDGT profile.
